By on February 5, 2013 at 12:34 pm

As long as comics have existed, fans have had discussions about who would win in dream match-ups of heroes, villains, and everything in-between, and the upcoming DC Comics fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us will allow these battles to play out in a way rarely seen before. In an effort to highlight some of these  marquee matches and showcase a few of the skills each character will be bringing to the table, the folks behind the title have opened the Injustice Battle Arena.

Over the next ten weeks, the arena will be updated every Monday with special versus scenarios for fans to vote on, with a video showcasing the winner released after voting ends each following Thursday. To help you make your decision, they will be gathering a wide array of opinions from people on the street as well as notable personalities. This should be a great opportunity to get a sneak peek at how Injustice’s cast members will perform if you haven’t had a chance to try it for yourself, so be sure to vote on the characters you’re interested in.

The Battle Arena introduction video and press release have been included below, along with the first week’s look at Batman vs. Bane and Wonder Woman vs. Harley Quinn.

      Already pre-ordered the battle edition and put in my vote for this week and got a dlc skin

  • Guys make sure you vote! You’ll get a choice between a Green Arrow DLC skin, or an Avatar theme!

  • bajj We need more gameplay vids.

  • sadAsian

    this game needs more asians

  • Disco-lemonade

    Wow, wasn’t expecting to get anything out of this, but a free DLC skin? Very nice!

  • sadAsian

    this game needs at least one asian :[

  • More like “needs more Mexican.”  COME ON, BLUE BEETLE!

  • Jordan Hoffman

    We’ve got cyborg, tell blue beetle to go eat some chalupas with el fuerte.

  • this is making me want to create a facebook

  • Langdon Herrick

     If y’all want other flavors besides vanilla in your super-powered fiction, you’d best turn to Marvel. DC Universe’s top tier is as ethnically diverse as the RNC.

  • Okay, since SRK isn’t responding to my tips, I’m just gonna leave this here.  Captain Marvel revealed, guys:

    NRS Best fighting game developer this generation? Absolutely.

  • Legion

    Apart from the little tidbit that their games are always unbalanced and broken….

    anyway.. Now I know why she is called Wonder woman, cause after seeing dem graphics it’s a wonder she is a woman…

    • NRS_Fighter_Community

      Shung tsung player woundcowboy placing second in the last mk9 tournament over one of the best kabals players in mk9 scene detriotbalin, and the  best kenshi in mk9 scene pig of the hut, and DJT one if not best cyrax player says HI! Know your shit before you speak on the NRS community fuckboi

      •  I just don’t get how we can have character diversity in every single top 8 and people still call MK9 unbalanced.

        • PJ

          Because in the hands of “normal” players it is. Top 8’s can’t really be considered because some players are just godlike with some characters. Happens in every game that way.   

          Got my dlc code too. A fan of the Arrow TV series so glad to get it!

          •  But that’s how match-ups work, by deciding how many matches two characters would win AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL.  If a character is truly broken, then it shouldn’t matter how gdlk the other player is.

            Why should I care if Noob Saibot beats Johnny Cage 8-2 at mid-level?  That number will never be relevant in a tournament context.
